We’re Under Construction!The location for the five new yurts at Moutcha Bay Resort
Moutcha Bay will debut yet another new look when we open the doors for the 2012 season. Winter storms wreaked havoc on the old marina and a new one – double the size – will be in place this season. We’re also adding 10 new upper campsites, some with stellar views, and we’re adding services to some of the existing upper sites.The road to the new, upper campsites at Moutcha Bay Resort
Down on the waterfront we’ll be adding five new yurts to bring the total to eight. The new yurts are on a point to the northwest of the existing yurts and will have great views of the marina. We will be open in a limited capacity beginning early June with some construction still underway. We anticipate all the facilities to be ready for our full opening in mid-June. We look forward to showing off our new digs!
